Even more impressive when you realize the bullet had to drop in from above, almost like a mortar round.

I don't recall what program it was on, but there was a segment showing an attempt to do a 1 mile shot. Despite having a skilled sniper behind the gun and another spotting, in several attempts, they got real close once and had no clue where the other rounds went. Now, atmospheric conditions (mirage, wind etc.) had a major effect. You could see the mirage on the TV. Would be a big help if clear, limited mirage etc.

No idea what rounds were in use on the attempt above, just don't remember.

In all honesty, skill heck! That was Allah showing his displeasure with ISIS/ISIL/Daesh.

Astounding effort!!
My son asked how much lead you would need. I told him you'd have to book an appointment with your victim a week in advance.

Luck playing a large part, it still seems Western snipers seem to be awfully lucky, fairly often.

I'm wondering how many are using the new still largely secret laser-computer shooting technology that greatly increases the probability of a hit.

I wonder if the shot was taken on a small group of people. Like a squad briefing before executing a Frag order. That would up the hit probability.

Who would like to see the sniper teams range card...
